My god died young. Theolatry I found
Degrading, and its premises, unsound.
No free man needs a god; but was I free?
How fully I felt nature glued to me
And how my childish palate loved the taste
Half-fish, half-honey, of that golden paste!
I always thought it would be cool to juxtapose windows 95-era computer imagery with fantasy elements like magic and spirits.
SO, i give you: floppy disk demon. pretend the GIF compression is for thematic effect.
HELL YEAH THIS IS EXACTLY MY SHIT

Adopting techniques from astronomers and ophthalmologists [eye experts], biologists have found a novel way to produce sharper microscope images. Like the atmosphere and an eye’s lens, biological samples bend light in peculiar ways, producing information that’s difficult for microscopes to interpret. Astronomers have learnt to overcome such light-bending by shining a laser – known as a guide star – into the atmosphere and measuring the distortion of the returning light. They then use this measurement to tweak the telescope’s mirror to correct the aberrations. Biologists have mimicked this technique by using a fluorescent object, such as a cell body, as a ‘guide star’. And thanks to this novel method, here we can see with remarkable clarity a network of nerve cells deep in the brain of a living zebrafish.

relationship status: getting serious
The dedication is stronk
in time you’ll become a skeleton, i promise
Don’t quite yet understand this 420sc thing but it sure is funny as hell.
there’s nothing to understand
you’re either a skeleton
or a nerd
"Also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, or corpse plant.
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees. Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest. It is often associated with beech trees.
The complex relationship that allows this plant to grow also makes propagation difficult.
The plant is sometimes completely white but commonly has black flecks and a pale pink coloration. Rare variants may have a deep red color.”
